SB 577 - This act limits the number of excursion gambling boat operator licenses that may be issued by the Missouri Gaming Commission to a total of 13. After January 1, 2012, the number of licenses will be limited to the total number issued at that time. If any existing license expires, is forfeited, revoked, surrendered, or becomes invalid, the commission may only replace that license with a licensee located in the same city or county as the former licensee. Any new licenses issued prior to January 1, 2012, may only be issued in the counties of Jackson, Clay, Platte, St. Louis, Jefferson, or St. Charles or the City of St. Louis.
This act is identical to HCS/HB 560 (2005).
